Korean Pros and Welsh Open

Welsh Open
23 June 2012 - 24 June 2012

Thirty-six players turned out for the Welsh Open, held at Barmouth for the 20th year. Richard Hunter (3d Bristol) won with 5 out of 5. Other prizewinners with 4 out 5 were Toby Manning (tournament runner-up), Edward Blockley (5k Worcester), Huw Mort (10k York) and Colin Maclennan (10k Twickenham).

The tournament was fortunate to be visited by two Korean lady professionals; Juyeon Ko (8p) and Sohyun Park (3p). Ms. Ko gave a lecture before the start of the tournament on dealing with non-joseki moves, and the two gave a simultaneous display against 17 players on Saturday evening, winning all their games and spending time afterwards with each player to discuss critical moments.
